It is time for the movement to get ready for Spring protests to all 50 State Capitals culminating with a May 1st march to Washington D.C. to protest greed and corruption in local and state levels and finally to the Federal level! May 1st is celebrated as May Day all around the world as recognition for workers! We need to march on all 50 State Capitals by the hundreds of thousands starting in March and April and then by the millions in Washington D.C.on May 1st! We want an end to greed and corruption in Congress, Wall Street, the Banks ,Corporations and state and local politics! These marches will lead to occupation of landmarks where this greed and corruption is occurring!

For those of you just checking in.

Don't forget to petition the Justice Department to start prosecuting the economic criminals. There has to be accountability.

This is why we are here this is why you are needed.

Mayday is a call for help, a notification of disaster.

Should be appropriate for protest/demonstrations.

Let me know if you want to join our effort for March 30, the National Occupation of Washington, DC (NOW DC). See http://www.facebook.com/events/119446728166304/

OMG? Is this is another march on DC? We have one planned for 1/17, 3/30 and now this? Do you people not talk to each other? Way to splinter the effort and the media attention.

Actually the more the better, it shows we will not go away, and perhaps works to get others curious about the movements.

Laura... The one on 1/17 is only set to last a few days/ The weather is horrible there in January and people are still yet in school for another semester. These are not just marches, but a permanent occupation. I help push the May1st Mayday action and I've talked to the people scheduling in March and we think it's good to have all the different start dates, as long as people get there. This is an autonomous movement and its good that we all had the same idea but separate ways of doing it. There's no leaders to pick off or imprison and no way to squash this movement. Get there when you can get there. It's gonna be huge.

I hope that people in all fifty states start planning to march on their state capitol buildings this Spring to protest greed and corruption on the local and state levels. These state protests will culminate in millions marching from all fifty states in caravans to Washington D.C. on May 1st ( known throughout the world as May Day or Workers Day ) to give recognition to the workers and their contribution to societies. We need to get Union Workers, Teachers, Firefighters, Policemen, Goverment Workers, Underpaid Workers, Unemployed,etc.etc. to march first to their state capitols and then to Washington to demand an end to greed and corruption in the halls of Congress, Wall Street, the Banks and Corporations.
